Transportation Costing Group (TCG), specialists in Profitability Management Tools and activity-based cost analysis for the transportation industry, announced that Midland Courier has adopted its Less Than Truckload Cost Information System (LTL/CIS). A member of the Irving Group of companies, Dieppe, New Brunswick-based Midland Courier handles two million shipments annually, ranging from packages to palletized loads, within and between Atlantic Canada and the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
“We chose the TCG LTL/CIS system to benefit from better profitability measurement for each customer’s business,” said Brian Matthews, Pricing Manager. “The ability to use this rigorous costing solution to access information easily by lane, service type and customer grouping, and to analyze new business more quickly, allows us to develop the most profitable sectors. Better operational reports and understanding of our business also allows us to find ways to reduce costs and provide superior quality service,” Matthews stated.
“The integration between LTL/CIS and our management system, including the way it ties directly to our General Ledger, was very important to us. We also found that with years of experience in transportation costing, TCG has an excellent understanding of our business and offers very responsive technical support, before and after the sale. In addition, the company’s regular User Conferences allow for an exchange of ideas and best practices with other customers, who also speak very highly about their experience with TCG.”
